Hello and thanks for calling, today I'm sharing a page in my journal that was inspired by one of my 'special' visitors - 'my' Blackbird, and I'm sharing this over at Art Journal Journey, for Gill's theme of 'Inspsired By'
I've used torn napkin and stencilled flowers and leaves and my blackbird is actually a photocopy from a napkin with a robin, I've reduced the size and copied it in black and fussy cut, adding a larger beak.
Unfortunately, I get a lot of Wood pigeons coming into my garden and they are so greedy, so I started to feed the smaller birds just outside the patio doors, yes they sometimes make a mess, but a quick hose over the patio when I've watered the plants each evening is fine by me. However this one particular blackbird is so friendly and cheeky, that he looks in the window for me to feed him and as he's feeding chicks, this happens quite a lot. He's usually sitting on the steps waiting for me when I open the curtains first thing on a morning!
I've added a couple of photos of this cheeky but cute bird (sorry about the reflection)
Well I better go check whether there's a little visitor waiting for food.
